Other content I found interesting this week Working on Fable destroyed my life, but I don't regret it It’s OK to Be Mad at Games Journalism, But Don’t Be a Moron About It I had to look at the Forbes article, the one this article links to, around the time it was first posted. I had to look at it because every article written in that style is always going to lie, misinterpret, ignore the human element of live coverage, etc and I always want to see how long it would take the author to do one of those things. He couldn't even make it through the first sentence without lying or saying something that would obviously be shown as wrong if he had looked into it, not that the kind of people creating conent like that care about factual reporting, pandering to outrage culture is easier, which is an odd way of thinking for people complaining about the competence of the press.

  5. It's been 4 days since the launch of XCOM 2, but I just have to ask one question: What do you think about the XCOM 2 mods available in the Steam Workshop? In my honest opinion, I believe that the mods available for XCOM 2 are rather fun to use, but they were more like beta testing for a DLC. They may not be perfect, some may even be game-breaking unintentionally, but they are still fun to use.
